Molina López Abogados was created in 2003 with the aim to provide an efficient and professional legal service, with foresight, to cover all of the legal requirements that its clients may need. Therefore, we include the management and administration of Owners’ Communities in our services, secure in the knowledge that this is one of the fields where most legal matters arise and where, on the other hand, there are the least number of qualified professionals.
As is well known, Property Administration requires extensive knowledge of the legal regulations governing Owners’ Communities, including accounting, fiscal and tax laws, all combined with efficient, speedy and personal services, backed by clear and transparent work that leads to full trust by the owners.
The office director, Cristina Molina López, is a Lawyer and Property Administrator, member of the professional association. Her knowledge of Law, specifically of Condominium Property, Real Estate and Town Planning Law, allow her to quickly respond to those legal matters that arise in day-to-day activities, as well as to the ordinary and extraordinary problems derived from the operation of an Owners’ Community, without having to resort to the services of other professionals.
We aim to offer these services for our clients through a clear, transparent and, most importantly, relatable and understanding management for everyone.
In short, what this office provides, through its Director, Cristina Molina López, and its professional staff, is a professional, specialised, concise and transparent service, to cover the various needs of an Owners’ Community in a unified manner. We are always willing to work and collaborate with any other professionals that the owners deem convenient.
We include in our work the management and Administration of Communities of Owners, sure that this is one of the fields in which more legal issues arise, and in which, on the contrary, fewer qualifield professionals exist.

Legal action against defaulting owners
regarding Lawyer fees, for new small claims proceedings that are brought. Prompt notification to owners in arrears and beginning of legal proceedings to collect the debt, thus aiming to minimise the harm to the Community. These proceedings are usually brought by the office itself, therefore they do not entail lawyer fees for the community until the case is closed, when, as a rule, payment for the legal fees can be claimed from the defaulting owners that caused the proceedings in the first place.
